Public bug reported:

UEC setup based on 20091020.3 / 1.6~bzr931-0ubuntu7
Booting c1.medium UEC images, I notice the following:

amd64 images:
/etc/fstab has "/dev/sdb /mnt ext3"
Instance has the following device (instead of a /dev/sdb): 
  /dev/sda2: Linux rev 1.0 ext2 filesystem data
This results in failure to mount at boot, with messages like "/mnt: waiting for /dev/sdb"

To be compliant with what EC2 does, Eucalyptus should provide amd64
instances with a /dev/sdb, not a /dev/sda2.
